why study abnormal behavior diagnosis and medication
Why Study AbnormalBehavior, Diagnosis, and Medication?
  • Read vignettes, middle of p. 323
  • Reasons to study abnormal developmental, diagnosis, & medication—see 11 reasons p. 324
  • You can’t have one without the other (abnormal behavior, diagnosis, and medication)
    • If you believe in extreme deviations from the norm (mental disorders and abnormal behavior), then you are going to want to understand it—classify it
    • If you classify it (diagnose disorders), then you (or the clients) are going to want to be treated
    • One form of treatment is medication
personality development and abnormal behavior
Personality Development and Abnormal Behavior
  • Genetic and Biological Explanations
    • Genetics subset of biology
    • If disorders are biologically based, it would make sense to treat them biologically
    • Treating biologically can be broad-based, such as:
      • Medication
      • Stress reduction
      • Exercises
      • Amount of light we receive
      • Proper amount of sleep
      • Etc.
personality development and abnormal behavior freud
Personality Development and Abnormal Behavior (Freud)
  • Born all Id
  • Develop ego and superego as we pass through the psychosexual stages
  • Experiences through the stages effects personality development
  • Extremely poor parenting leads to development of maladaptive behaviors as our defense mechanism attempt to control the impulses of our id
  • Discuss how various parenting styles may affect development
    • Parents who are obsessively strict
    • Parents who extensively praise
personality development and abnormal behavior learning theory
Personality Development and Abnormal Behavior (Learning Theory)
  • Learning occurs through operant conditional, classical conditioning, or modeling
  • Principles of operant conditioning explains many of the ways that individuals develop (see p. 330)
  • Major factors that lead to healthy or dysfunctional personality:
    • Born capable of multiple personality characteristics
    • Behaviors and cognitions continually reinforced
    • Reinforcements can be very complex and subtle
    • Abnormal behavior result of reinforcement
    • Analysis of reinforcements leads to understanding of person
    • New behaviors learned by applying principles of learning
personality development and abnormal behavior humanistic approach
Personality Development and Abnormal Behavior (Humanistic Approach)
  • Maslow and Rogers most influential
  • Maslow: We exhibit characteristics based on our placement in need hierarchy (See Figure 10.1, Page 332)
  • Rogers: How significant others treat us results in our personality development (and placement on Hierarchy)
    • We all need to be loved
    • Conditions or worth placed on us
    • To gain love, we respond to others based on conditions of worth—leads to false self
    • With empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard we can rediscover our “true” selves
personality development and abnormal behavior post modernism and social constructionism
Personality Development and Abnormal Behavior (Post-modernism and Social Constructionism)
  • Post-modernism
    • Questioning of modernism
    • “Truth” is a construction
  • Social Constructionism
    • Language creates reality through discourse
    • Thus, our realities are created through our discourses with others and how “reality” is passed down through society
  • Conclusion
    • Abnormal behavior is simply a social construction
      • Perhaps, the mental health field plays a part in continuing this deception
comparing models and integrating models
Comparing Models and Integrating Models
  • See Comparison of Models Table 10.1 Page 336
    • Today, many clinicians integrate the models

multicultural social justice focus
Multicultural/Social Justice Focus
  • Misdiagnosis of Minority Clients
    • Symptomatology may vary as a function of culture
    • Does DSM-IV-TR truly take into account affects of oppressive society?
    • Some say: DSM-IV-TR legitimizes the concept of “disorder” thus making it acceptable to oppress those with the disorder
multicultural issues social justice focus
Multicultural Issues /Social Justice Focus

    • Much greater attention to issues of age, gender, socioeconomic status, and culture
    • Also has 25 “Culture-bound Syndromes”

      • Cultural Sensitivity: Be sensitive to how cultural background can affect the manner in which the client expresses self
      • Historical and Social Prejudice: Counselors should understand and recognize that some groups have been misdiagnosed and pathologized
      • Refraining from Making a Diagnosis: Refrain from diagnosing if you think if making a diagnosis will harm client

Ethical, Professional, & Legal Issues(Professional Issues)
  • DSM-5 (probably, 2013)
    • May collapse Axis I and Axis II

    • Corey: feasons why clinicians should be careful when diagnosing (see bottom of p. 350)
  • Overdiagnosis of Mental Illness
    • Because we have DSM, do we naturally overly diagnose?

  • Dismissing Impaired Graduate Students
    • Should we dismiss students at all?
    • Should we view students from DSM?
    • Should we take a developmental perspective and assist students to strive toward wellness?
    • ACA code suggests:
      • Assist students in securing remedial assistance
      • Seek professional consultation and document decision to dismiss or refer students
      • Ensure students have recourse in a timely manner to address issues of referral or dismissal
